July was not a great month for reading, in fact I barely read anything. It was a busy month between quitting job, applying for new jobs, and getting old jobs again. Not to mention I graduated at the end of the month, there’s a wedding coming soon (not mine), hopefully a new and better job, and not to mention the general stress all of these new life changes create.
All of which caused a major reading slump for the majority of the month. It wasn’t until the last week of July that I actually started reading again and finished four books. Sounds like a lot but it isn’t, not when half of them have pictures in them and one of them was an audiobook.
In recent years I’ve taken a real interest in reading books about the places where I am from. While a lot of the books I read take place in the U.S., where I live, they rarely take place my state, Florida and much less Miami. I was also born in Cuba and lived there until my family immigrated to the U.S. when I was four years old. I don’t remember much from living there but my parents make sure that I don’t forget where I come from and why they chose to make that move.
In today’s post I want to talk about some of the books that take place either in Miami or Cuba, some of them have been horrible, others great, and some I’m looking forward to reading soon.
